Revolution! More like crime...

While the Roma Nova thrillers are set in an imaginary remnant of the Ancient Roman Empire, they remain at heart thrillers – action, suspense, twisty plots, courageous characters and bad guys of every description. And every character has multiple layers, talents, abilities, hang-ups and failings.

Well, I was challenged a few years ago by Conn Iggulden (no less!) to write a modern, non-alternative history heroine and her adventures. So I have.

Double Identity is due out on 7 January 2021 in paperback and ebook.

—————–

Waking up to find her fiancé dead in their bed in a London hotel was not how Mel thought her new life with Gérard would begin. Nor facing years of prison for his murder.

Three days ago, dual-national Mel threw in her job as an intelligence analyst with the French special forces to marry Gérard. Now with British cop McCracken determined to pin the homicide on her, Mel will do anything to track down the killer.

Forced to work with McCracken, Mel begins to unpick her fiancé’s secret life in a web of international money laundering and terrorism.

Not entirely sure of her own identity, her trust is stretched to the limit when she goes undercover and discovers almost everybody around her is hiding a second self.

And then she is hit by  the ultimate betrayal…

A second one in the new series is due later in 2021.

But the foundation story of Roma Nova is also is the pipeline – FONDATIO – so there is plenty coming up in 2021!

A new Roma Nova story is now out in this anthology!

The Idealist, a dual time-line story, is part of an exciting new historical fiction venture. Twelve award-winning authors in five countries – the Historical Fictioneers – have pooled their storytelling powers with a collection of tales offering twelve takes on the theme of betrayal.

Spanning eras from post-Roman Britain to the present day, the stories bring to life both legendary moments of deceit as well as imagined episodes of treachery.

In The Idealist, you meet Roma Nova’s much-loved Carina and Conrad again. Carina is in top snappy form as you’d expect but she’s devastated to discover a dark piece of Mitela family history from the 1840s which could rebound into the 21st century and bring ruin and exile for her, her children and family into perpetuity.

In the other stories, you’ll encounter a princes, soldiers, noblewomen, knights, highwaymen, pirates, and ordinary people caught up in extraordinary circumstances. All of these characters have something in common, though – betrayal.

Collectively, these stories illustrate the truth that whatever its source – family, foe, lover, comrade – betrayal has devastating consequences.

Hailing from two continents and five countries, the Historical Fictioneers include Judith Arnopp, Cryssa Bazos, Anna Belfrage,  Derek BirksHelen HollickAmy MaroneymeChar NewcombTony RichesMercedes RochelleElizabeth St John and Annie Whitehead.
